Freight, Importance of a bill of lading

I recently had a customer shipping freight from the west coast to the east coast. The shipper did not have a bill of lading and the trucking company did not have an of his company bill of ladings. I explained to the customer that it is necessary for him to provide a bill of lading.

The bill of lading is a contract between the shipper and the trucking companyand the terms are binding in the court of law, they are also binding for the consignee. The bill of lading is moving document and does not function as proof of delivery.
Important information that should be on the bill of lading
1. Name of consignor
2. Name of consignee
3. Origin and destination
4. Number of packages
5. Description of freight
6. Weight and volume/measurements of freight
